Hong Kong the way it was @ F11 Foto Museum
Celebrating its 5th birthday, F11 Foto Museum is proud to present “HONG KONG the way it was”, an exhibition of over 130 beautiful photos taken in 1959 -1960 by Ed van der Elsken (1925 – 1990), one of the most influential Dutch photographers in the 20th century. This will be the first time the HONG KONG series is shown in its entirety. In this collection, van der Elsken shows his great warmth and hope for old Hong Kong, which he described as the “prettiest of harbour cities” during his 13-month round-the-world trip.  While staying in Hong Kong for three weeks, he was able to capture the essence of cityscapes, town views and people of the city at that time.  There is a touch of familiarity in these prints, yet there are also many fascinating “new” objects, practices and building structures that are long gone.  Through van der Elsken’s eyes, visitors can reminisce and discover the disappeared Hong Kong of times past. The exhibition is open for public viewing from 2pm to 7pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays (closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays). Please email to info@f11.com, or call 6516 1122 for group visit appointment. Admission Fee: HKD100 for adults.  HKD50 for students and[...]
